The Secret Garden (dramatic reading)


Published December 21, 2012


LibriVox recording of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's novel is about orphaned Mary Lennox, who is sent to live with her uncle at Misslethwaite Manor in Yorkshire. Initially a sour, bad-tempered child, Mary begins to bloom under the influence of nature when she discovers a long-abandoned garden on the grounds of her uncle's estate. Burnett's novel is brought to life in this dramatic reading by LibriVox volunteers who lend their voices to her characters. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Subject: Nicely done
There were negligible errors but it would be grossly unfair to pay attention to them while rating this download. Thanks to the readers, librivox and archive.org

Subject: Very good work
Very good job by the team of readers--even the Yorkshire accents were well done. (Of course I am not a really good judge in terms of, say, really being able to tell a Yorkshire from a Scottish accent, but they came through smoothly, sounded like real accents, and nothing sounded forced, which is already pretty high quality for public domain audio.) Almost all the parts have very good expression to them, especially Mary and Colin who both do an excellent job of sounding like imperious brats (in the moments where that's what they're being.)

And of course it's a very good book in itself--excellent for listening to while doing spring gardening!
